“1. You must let the pain visit.
2. You must allow it teach you
3. You must not allow it overstay.

(Three routes to healing)”
Ijeoma Umebinyuo, Questions for Ada

“I am too full of life
to be half-loved.”
Ijeoma Umebinyuo, Questions for Ada

“So, here you are
too foreign for home
too foreign for here.
Never enough for both.”
Ijeoma Umebinyuo, Questions for Ada


One God, many faces.
One family, many races.
One truth, many paths.
One heart, many complexions.
One light, many reflections.
One world, many imperfections.
We are all one,
But many.”
Suzy Kassem, Rise Up and Salute the Sun: The Writings of Suzy Kassem

Ta-Nehisi Coates
“So I feared not just the violence of this world but the rules designed to protect you from it, the rules that would have you contort your body to address the block, and contort again to be taken seriously by colleagues, and contort again so as not to give the police a reason. All my life I’d heard people tell their black boys and black girls to “be twice as good,” which is to say “accept half as much.” These words would be spoken with a veneer of religious nobility, as though they evidenced some unspoken quality, some undetected courage, when in fact all they evidenced was the gun to our head and the hand in our pocket. This is how we lose our softness. This is how they steal our right to smile.”
Ta-Nehisi Coates, Between the World and Me
